Set Her Free

Harry Styles has known something is wrong with him for most of his life. He's wicked smart and really nice, but people don't hang out with him. He gets called 'gay' on a daily basis, although he doesn't know what that means until third grade. He gets called 'weak' when he plays sports, because he's not good at them. He spends too much time looking at the cheerleaders. But it's not because he wants them. He wants to be one of them.


17. Week One

After a long night and a few days later, Harriet was ready to begin her two weeks of preparation to set her free.

She kept a little journal with her at all times, concealing it with her other books. She had written 'Harriet's Journal' in a fancy script with a sparkly pink pen on the front page, but if anybody saw her with it she could say that she was just waiting for a time that she could drop it off at the lost and found.

The only thing that she used the journal for was to record her progress. By the time it was a Saturday morning again, Harriet had the following pages covered.


Steps For Each:

Li:Asked him if he thought I'd look good as a girl.

Z: Made a 'joke' about how he'd look good with longer hair, then added "I think I would too.' seriously.

N: Went to the movies on my day off. Wore super-short shorts with him that showed my shaved legs.

Lou: Girl-gawking. Lou checking them out. Made a 'joke' about how I'd give anything to be one.


Li: "You're joking, right?" Negative. -

Z: Agreed. Positive. +

N: Laughed for about twenty minutes, then proceeded to make fun of my 'hairless chicken limbs'. Negative. -

Lou: Half-smile, pat on my shoulder, and a 'Sure, Haz.'. Neutral? +/-

~Love, Harriet
